Hi Everyone. I am Shirley of Hudson's Holidays. I create craft and quilting patterns...over 160 in my line. I also make digital collage sheets. This is my studio...one I work in everyday (how I make my living- full time)....I have stations for everything and I took over my whole basement!
This is the first thing you see when coming downstairs... "Flo" my mannequin, she goes to all my shows too. Right now she is wearing my fabric flower necklace and hankies.
I picked up this shelf at the thrift store....painted it blue and put my paints in it...so handy. I recycle and buy at thrift shops for my studio....no debt or credit cards this way. I do what I can and enjoy it so much.
This is my favorite table...I do paper crafts and collage here. I love having all my pens and supplies close at hand. My workspaces are cluttered and full of supplies. LOL
Fun happy space. I wish my studio could look like a magazine spread (boy do I love ALL the art/craft magazines) but real work goes on here and it isn't picture perfect....but I LOVE it here.
My light box is in the background.....I made it to photograph small items. It has made a huge difference in my pictures. Check out "how to make light boxes" on the internet.
This cubby hole was $4.95 ...so awesome! I love my old typewriter.
Dawn dolls having a fashion party!
My cricut area.....I love my cricut. This is a mouse pin cushion I made, he is sitting in a pie tin.
Light box and florals for backgrounds.
This is mailing center and gluing center...got to have these spots.
One day at a time....a painting I made this year.
Pink pooch guarding the pens.
My witch is getting ready for halloween.
I made a message board from an old fence.
The place where I write patterns, sell, copy...you know ...the real work...all the rest is play.
Entering my sewing area. I put an old tide box covered with fabric on my table to catch scraps.
My cutting table and sewing room. I inherited the cutting table and loads of fabric when my mom passed away....I feel she would be soooo proud of me. I lost her when I turned 30 and my only child was 20 days old.
I love sewing on this old door...that is what the table really is. My Quilting machine is in another building besides my house (it is a huge party room and another huge room is storage)....it was to big for my basement :(
My goodies...I love collecting. I love creating with flash cards.
I made tons of little labels, so cute!
I got to have tv when working or music.
I saved the best picture for last.....my daughter Selina....my crafting buddy. She is a great artist and is ready to sell her wares too. I try to teach her all I can. I want to have more pics up in a day or so.
Thanks for stopping by!!!!!
